Tea in 'good' cups

Today is a day of absolute pleasure for me.  I'll be sitting in the shade of the verandah reading one of my new books; tea will be had in the "good" cups. I'll knit and maybe go out for morning tea with Hanno.  I might even do some more research on my family tree. Today is my birthday, I am 62.

It seems like a good day to delve into my own history.  So far, I'm back to my great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandparents Thomas Bond and Grace Cook who were married in Yardley, England on 27 March 1654.  I've found two convicts on my fathers side - who came to Australia in 1799, and a soldier who accompanied the convicts on my mother's side - I have a letter he wrote in 1820 when he lived in King Street Sydney.  That address is now in the middle of Sydney's main business and shopping centre.

I'm pleased you're enjoying the current simple life series. Thank you all for your comments.  I hope you have a lovely day.

ADDITION on 16th: Thanks to every one who took time out to send me their special birthday wishes - I have an avalanche of emails and facebook messages as well as your comments here.  I love your messages and appreciate your friendship. Warm hugs to you all.

  1. Oooh, happy birthday Rhonda! What a lovely day you have planned :) And tea in good cups is a marvellous treat :) How fascinating to find out about your family history!

    It's my birthday in a couple of weeks too - I'll be 30 so I'm (slowly) catching you up... I've been trying to think of a suitably celebratory event, but just keep coming back to what I'm most enjoying at the minute - baking a nice cake, sitting having a cuppa with some friends, a bit of sewing, a bit of gardening...

    (I'd love a paddle in the sea actually, but I'm not sure I can bear the 3 hour round trip that involves!)

    Enjoy your day, and best wishes for the coming year, I'm sure it will be beautiful

  66. Happy Birthday. And family history is so fun. I found that one of my mother's great-great aunts was the first to have electrical wiring in her house in the town my mother grew up in (Back during the time of Thomas Edison). No one was brave enough and she was an elderly woman living alone and said "I'll do it."

    Enjoy you're birthday.

  71. Happy birthday to the lovely Rhonda! Hope you are having the best day. It's always the simple things isn''t it. Since arriving in NZ my birthday is always spent at my favourite beach with hubby and the dogs for an hour then on the way home stopping off for the treat of fish and chips from a cafe right over the water. I would far rather do this than go to a posh restaurant or something!
    Tea in the 'good cups' - yeh!

    I was 52 on Sunday, and I had a tea party, my family here in Denmark enjoy it when I make tea. I baked a chocolate cake, made a pyramid of sandwiches, and used the best blue and white china.

  106. Hope it is not to late to wish you a happy birthday Rhonda. I'm sure you had a lovely time sipping tea from the 'good cups' - this is what my mother called her china tea cups, she would say whenever we had guests 'Use the good cups Ann' and would cringe if my father brought out tea in mugs which he often did!
    I have recently unearthed my own family history and found out that my heritage is not entirely English as my great grandmother was from the Fairbanks family of America/Canada. She came from a very wealthy Nova Scotian family and I'm intrigued to find out more about her life! It is quite fascinating isn't it especially when you discover unexpected facts about your family history.

  116. Happy Birthday! Have a lovely relaxing day - you deserve it. Isn´t it amazing how the interest in researching family histories has exploded? So many resources are now easily available via the Internet. My husband is up to his ears in it and having a great time. He has traced a Swedish relative to Australia. Interest seems to be confined to the older generation though. Fairly natural perhaps. I am leaving that task to my husband but I have often wondered how it can be that most of us have no idea about the names and lives of our ancestors. Such a pity.
    May the coming year be filled with contentment - and good health to you both.

  125. A VERY Happy Birthday to you! I hope you have/had a wonderful day (I'm in TN, USA, so the time difference!)
    When my children were growing up I tried to instill in them the pleasure of having and using nice things by serving their morning juice in the "nice" glasses, using the "good" dishes, having nice bed and bath linens, etc. Even though we were by no means "well off", (I was a single, working Mom,)I thought it important for them to experience such things. So "ta in good cups" hit home with me.

    I just want you to know how much I have appreciated your Blog over the last 3 years. I will be 60 in September and I found your blog when we set up housekeeping in a camper while we cleared some land and started our new homestead. We are now in the house and working on the outside. Our first garden will be ready to plant in a week or two. You have inspired me to not get discouraged. At our age we are a bit slower than we anticipated we would be at accomplishing our goal. ;o) But I can't wait to see where we will be in another 2 years. Thank you for sharing.....FYI, I am making my first batch of Ginger Beer right now! ;o) Best wishes from Virginia, USA

  147. Happy Belated Birthday. Tea in good cups and family history sounds like a wonderful day. I am doing our family tree on my mother's side and it is HARD! No way to search internet for ancestors in small Palau but it is fun to see all the connections. Best wishes for the upcoming year.
